Another on my series of photos from ten years ago: January 2014.
What a stupid place to park – right in the middle of the tram stop
Signs of climate change were evident in 2013. It’s not getting any better.
Technically this was December 2013 – we had gone to the early fireworks. Plenty of people waiting on platform 2 for a Sandringham train
Can’t find a seat on a crowded platform? No matter – bring your own!
I quite like the bright red tiles jumping out here, and the alignment of the real life passenger with the one on the poster. Melbourne Central station.
At Footscray station, construction was underway for Regional Rail Link. New platforms were built on the north side and the Sunbury line moved across to use them. The new V/Line tracks were yet to be laid to replace them.
Richmond station’s centre subway. This hasn’t changed much.
This photo from mid-January shows how crowded peak hour trains were getting in the midst of a reduced timetable. Note the lack of hand holds resulting in people gripping the ceiling.
A few days earlier I’d filmed some footage and given it to Channel 7 to put pressure on the government to return the full timetable. Hopefully someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but I think there hasn’t been a reduce summer timetable since that year.
